rolled stoo top within the garter; e spaced parallel gnppgf P01130115. 17' .5 is. an enlarged perspective view shgwn n Fig. 6 are adap to overl e a top in order to hold up the stocking and that the rolled top. preferably lies in what may be termed a gripping pocket. Owing' to the arrangement of the garter, the life of the stocking is greatly prolonged and the roll is held firmly andco'mfortably in position even though it has been rolled loosely. Furthermore, when the garter is worn as shown in Fig. 4, the elastic 12 of the garter may be conveniently'located Within .a fold of the stocking, as shown, so that a portion of the stocking as shown-in dotted lines lies between this portion of the garter and the body of the wearer.

Another way of wearing the garter is to roll the stocking, as is frequently done, with an elastic band rolled up with the roll in order'to facilitate the rolling, and after the top has been rolled to put on the garter so that one elastic is located above the roll and one below it, with the intermediate, preferably textile portion, including the gripping member or members, overlying and embracing the roll; In such case the width of the garter as a whole and the individual widths of the spaced elastics may be varied as de-' sired.

There are, of course, which this garter may be worn, and it is obvious that the number of elastics provided may be varied and other obvious changes made without departing from the invention, as defined in the appended claim.

- What is claimed is:

A garter having spaced elastic portions and an intermediate textile portion, and an irregular elastic stocking gripping portion extending in a waving line circumferv entially around the inside thereof.

In testimony whereof I aflix my signature.
